WE DID IT! Just barely though... We got moved into our new place over the weekend and it pretty much was a nightmare. We gravely under estimated how much work it was going to be and then paid the price later on. There was so much stuff it was brutal. Luckily my mom and came up with the truck and Logan to help out and without them we never would've been able to do it. Of course Cody, Logan and I did all the heavy lifting which was a lot of stuff for three guys to move.
When we got the keys to the place and were doing a walk though I thought the unfinished basement was pretty large. It looked large, but it filled up pretty quick. Our basement is like the warehouse at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark. Just rows and stacks of boxes(crates). We put everything down there for the time being until we have more time to unpack, but you go down there to look for something and you can't find it because there is too much crap. That said we are gonna have to get rid of some stuff to clear out some space. I'd ask my sister to do another garage, but then she'd never talk to me again.
I'm old! After the first day of moving I was sore, my back, arms, legs, and feet. The next couple days the part that hurt the most were my calves. I don't know why, but they were killing me. I woke up two mornings and they were totally seized up, I could barely walk down the stairs. Also, I spent three days walking around, lifting heavy stuff while wearing my dirty old beat red checkered Vans. I probably should've worn something with more support because my left foot is messed up now. At least today I didn't do much and when I went out I wore my good Star Wars Vans, so it wasn't bad.
After all the crap we did it. We got moved it. We got it done. It didn't look like we gonna do it, but we did. We're in our new place, we have internet and TV, so that's all we need. It will take a while but we'll attempt to clean up the basement. I'll post various pictures of our new digs in upcoming posts. I'm going to sleep....
